Sample 1 of 6: Rougarou Lagoon
The Rougarou Lagoon is the playground of the Rougarou or Cajun Werewolf. The Lagoon is north of Devil's bay in the marshlands of the Louisiana Delta. An hour and a half drive South of New Orleans, where magic is still alive in the midnight air. The Vineyard used to open directly into the lagoon until the levee was created, now one must swim the canal and climb the levee to enter the wilderness of the untamed marshlands beyond. So many people have seen the Rougarou down here that there is a local Rougarou Festival in Houma, La to celebrate this wild thing. If legends are based on some shadow of truth then there could be several Rougarou roaming south Louisiana, as the Rougarou are said to be cursed men who were made this way with Voodoo. One only needs to stand on the levee during a full moon and hear the blood curdling noises coming from the great wide marshlands to know things are out there that are not found in a Zoo and even keep the gators on high alert.
Location of the vineyard and lagoon are currently held as secret.
